Suriya-starrer “Singam 3”, the third film in the popular “Singam” franchise, will be shot across four different countries. The regular shooting will commence from November.
“The film will be shot in India, Africa, Australia and Paris. As soon as Suriya completes shooting for Tamil thriller ’24’, he’s expected to take a short break and join the sets of ‘Singam 3’,” a source from the film’s unit told.
To be directed by Hari Gopalakrishnan, the film will feature Anushka Shetty and Shruti Haasan in the lead roles.
“In India, the film will be shot in Karaikudi in Tamil Nadu and in few locations in Andhra. Key portions will be filmed in Australia, while the climax will be shot in Paris,” the source added.
The pre-production work is underway and the team is finalising the rest of the cast.
Suriya Sivakumar-starrer Tamil action-drama ‘Singam 2’, which released worldwide July 5, has got a good opening. It collected Rs.9.25 crore on the release day in Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka despite getting criticism for being too lengthy.
“Reportedly made on a budget of Rs.45 crore, `Singam 2` collected a total of Rs.9.25 crore on the day of release from Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka,” trade analyst Trinath told reporters.
The critics said Hari Gopalakrishnan`s directorial venture as over commercial and extremely lengthy, but it seems that the viewers are enjoying the film.
The success of “Singam 2” comes as a respite for Suriya after his last two releases – “7am Arivu” and “Maattrraan” failed to keep the cash registers ringing.
The film is a sequel to highly successful “Singam”, and Hari Gopalakrishnan went behind the camera to helm both the films.
Besides Suriya, “Singam 2” also features Anushka Shetty, Hansika Motwani, Nasser, Mukesh Rushi, Danny Sapani, Rahman, Radha Ravi, Santhanam, Vivek and Anjali.
